I have following equation:
((1 + theta[m])^2)/(1 - m) - lambda*((theta[m] + ((lambda + m - lambda*m)*(1 + theta[m])*(1 + theta[m] - lambda*theta[m]))/(1 - m) +
I want to replace all m that are not an argument of theta[m] or the Derivative. However, if I use
/., it replaces all m. If I use Replace[expr,m->qq] it doesn't replace anything. (qq is the one I want to replace with). If I specify any level, it doesn't change anything, unless I use -1, but then I replace everything.
Do you know how I solve this problem?
Right now I use:
//. Derivative[y_][theta][m] -> Derivative[y][theta][dd] //.
theta[m] -> theta[dd] /. m -> qq //.
Derivative[y_][theta][dd] -> Derivative[y][theta][m] //.
theta[dd] -> theta[m]
but this is not elegant at all (and takes slightly longer).
